    Brief Update on Snowstorm

    2/05/2014, 7:32:40 AM

    Looks like a classic deformation snow band set up this morning/early afternoon in Ontario between Sarnia-Toronto-Oshawa-Kingston.

    This band produced snowfall rates of 2-5 cm per hour right along the 401 corridor. Obviously, many places within this region ended up with more snowfall and we thus adjusted heavier snow ranges farther north on our map below....


    Snow will continue to taper off over southern and eastern Ontario from SW to NE this afternoon as the storm tracks rapidly toward the east.

    Still like a general 15-30 cm over a good chunk of Nova Scotia, with many places in the southern and eastern third of Nova Scotia getting closer to 30 cm.

    We had about 12 cm of snow with some sleet at my place followed by a thin covering of freezing rain this morning. Had to shovel two pathways to get my car out of our driveway this morning only to find that our local street was completely untouched by the plow. It was a long drive in to work and it has been a long day at the office.

    I will have another update later this afternoon and will discuss snow potential this weekend for SW BC and in the east.
